Fall Festival safety a community affair


EPD PATCH 2012As tens of thousands of tri-staters head to West Franklin St this week, police are reminding everyone that keeping the event safe is a community affair.
The Evansville Police Department will have uniform and plain clothes officers working to make the Fall Festival a safe and successful event again this year. While the police try to monitor the crowds for unusual or disorderly behavior, they are not the only ones who can spot potential problems.
We are asking the public to be aware of their surroundings and to notify the police if they see anything suspicious. We are also asking for festival goers to let us know if they see people who are arguing or fighting.
When you arrive at the festival, make a mental note of where the officers are positioned throughout the festival site. That includes on Franklin and in the rides area.
The Nut Club will have a booth to reunite lost kids with their parents. They will be at Franklin and 11th. We also suggest you have a designated meeting place in case you get seperated from your group.
The weather looks great this week and we anticipate large crowds each night. Please keep this information in mind and have a great time.
